hmmm. do you really want to go with visible labels? really? b/c I can't imagine that in your abode.
my top-of-the head alternatives:
1. labels on the bottom of the decanters (hidden).
2. printed photo of the decanters with cheat sheet notes of what is in what hidden in a drawer in the display object that the bartender can consult.
labels pasted on or hanging from decanters or labels like little placecards standing up on the display unit just scream "county fair judging" to me.
but that's just me.

Oh wow. I have one bottle of rum. The container the rum is in was purchased AT the State Store, and has this really tacky but informative label. But I must say, although the issue is still domestic, it veers from the mommy blog route...I'm dying to hear Badger's solution.

I say use Post-It notes.
I promise I won't switch them around.

or, china marker.

If the decanters look different just keep a log that describes them and the contents. Don't put labels on them. If you have too many that are alike a discreet sharpie color on the bottom may be ok. I agree with jujube.

I am down with the labels-on-bottom idea too, if you MUST decant.
If 'twere me, however, I would keep the decanters above-bar looking pretty but non-functional, and pour from the actual bottles below-bar.

what about those wine-glass necklace thingeys, obviously a different one for each type of liquor?
